(Light Rail Transit) - this is Kuala Lumpur’s ground light metro. It consists of three lines:

1. Red line Kelana Jaya (old name Putra). Fully automated carriages without machinists go along this line.

2, 3 Orange, branching line Ampang (old name Star).

The reviews found on the Internet often say that the metro lines are not connected to each other, you have to pay separately for a trip on each branch, and you need to go to the city for the transfer.

We were lucky to use only three types of the above vehicles: LRT, KTM Komuter and taxi.

Our impressions

LRT
It is easy to buy a ticket using a machine gun onstation. All teams are duplicated in English. Choose the name of the station you need and the number of tickets by clicking directly on the monitor screen, get a ticket, pass through the turnstiles, pushing the ticket into a special slot and catching it a little further, and do not forget to take it with you, because you will need it go out. When you exit again thrust the ticket into the slot and, saying goodbye to him forever, go out into the city.

By the way, if you suddenly made a mistake and bought a ticket not to the station to which you arrived, do not worry. They say you can simply pay the difference in the window. Although we ourselves did not check it.

The stations have a toilet and a room for prayers thatit is very convenient, though surprising, why they are placed nearby. In subway cars Kuala Lumpur is cool, air condition works well, you can even freeze.

I was surprised by a huge number of "no" in their subway. Maybe, of course, we, too, are forbidden to do all this, but we just do not know

Recently, separate pink ones have been launched.trailers for Muslim women. It seems that non-Muslim women can go there, but men are asked to retire if they are at risk to go there. They themselves saw how a lady who entered a carriage in a scarf did not let a breathless man, who was afraid that he would not have time to run into another carriage.

Inside the train hang plaques calling for news.worthy of being in transport: do not smoke, do not eat in the car, do not litter, do not stick gum, do not take animals with you. Most of all amused the ban for couples in love on indecent behavior.

Taxi
We used only one time when traveling from Menara TV Tower. At the very TV tower to the nearest metro station they asked for 20 RM, but when we went down a bit and caught a taxi just outside, we were taken to China Town by the counter for 4.5 RM. The difference is indescribable.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
